I still can’t believe it. What once seemed like such a far destination is now at my door step. I know that I should be happy and that this is a natural progression of life. Truthfully i am happy, but at the same time there is a bitter sadness.
My oldest daughter graduates from elementary school tomorrow. She will soon be embarking on a fantastic journey. One of self discovery, and a new awareness of the world around her. There will be so many firsts, and not all of them will be good. I think she is more ready than I am, but I can’t let her know that.
If I could tell her one thing, or give her only one piece of advice it would be this; Remember, this too shall pass. I know sometimes that you are going to feel like it’s the end of the world as you know it. Life still goes on, and nothing lasts forever. It’s up to you as to how long you let things affect your life. Take control.
What great advice! My sons are young, I have 2 under 2 and I know this time will pass so fast and before you know it, they will be right where your daughter is.
